Eurocamp Active - Walking

Alison Mellor, our walking expert and On-parc Walk Organiser

Hello, my name is Alison Mellor. I spent a summer putting together a selection of easy, intermediate and challenging great walks for you for 10 Eurocamp parcs throughout France and Switzerland.

I am 58 and have 4 children and 2 step children. We used to spend literally every summer in France “Euro-camping”. Now all my kids love the outdoors and we even had a family re-union in Annecy, with my daughter and family from Australia and my son from the US! After that we walked the famous Tour de Mont Blanc, a 12 day hiking trail around Chamonix.

My passion for walking started at a young age in Sussex and Surrey, and later moving to the Lake and Peak Districts where there were more mountains and peaks to climb! Over the years I have walked just about all of the long distance footpaths in the UK. I now live in Wales, and have walked and travelled around the world since leaving my 'proper' jobs and Chartered Surveying in 2008.

I have previously worked as a Farm and Countryside Advisor for the National Trust in Wales, I’ve managed a Roman gold mine, I’ve advised the Wales Assembly Government on agricultural and environmental policy (Senior Executive Officer) and I’ve also spent a year with the local Archaeological Trust.

I trained in Mountain Leading with Plas y Brenin in North Wales, and hold Bronze and Silver National Navigation Awards (NNAS). Having spent a lifetime walking, I set up my own company and lead walks and tours for all ages, mainly in Europe.

I hope your holidays inspire you to enjoy the great outdoors and experience the amazing and diverse wildlife and countryside all around the campsites!
